We Are THAT Family...

So....
Kristen at We Are THAT Family is hosting a blogoversary carnival. Since we have THAT Family days all the time, I have no problems coming up with material for this post! In fact, our latest THAT Family moment happened day before yesterday.

This is my son. His bloggy name is Pepper. His real name (according to him) is Spiderman Kid Boy. His legal name is not disclosed to the world for privacy reasons. It's a great name, though! Anyhoo, Pepper is 3, and is boy to the core.

Look at that face! Isn't he adorable? He would NEVER do say anything to embarrass Mommy, would he? Naw....






I had a check-up with my GP on Tuesday. Since the appointment was in the middle of the morning, I took Pepper with me. As you can tell from the above photo, Pepper is obsessed--and I mean OBSESSED--with Spiderman. So my doctor, a nice family man in his mid-to-late 30's, comes in. Pepper goes bouncing over to Dr. B and hollers at the top of his lungs:

"SPIDERMAN doesn't have BOOBS! He has PECS because he's a boy! Spiderman has a PENIS because he's a boy! Girls have BOOBS but they don't have a PENIS!!! Girls just have a bottom."

And he was so proud of himself for screaming these facts to the whole office, including the nice elderly couple in the examining room next to mine.

And I wanted to dig a hole and crawl into it, never again to emerge.

And my doctor laughed until he cried.

So my friends, there's no question about it--We Are THAT Family!

this made me laugh so hard, Em!! :)
My Mom told me this story one time... when she was pregnant with Trisha (back in the 70's) she took Amber with her to one of her appointments. Amber was about 3 1/2 or 4 years old at the time. Anyway, the OB on call that day was a man and so when he was doing the exam, Amber began yelling at this guy and asking my Mom "where's my daddy???!!!!"
My Mom said she felt so horrible :(
